Classic Avant-Garde

The other day I pulled out my Films of Kenneth Anger:Part 2 DVD, and sat down and watched Scorpio Rising, Invocation Of My Demon Brother, and Kustom Kar Kommando's yet again. I don't know what it is about this guys films, but they have this entrancing quality to them. Anger was a true master of the moving image. Every once in a while, I'll break out the DVD's and watch some of the shorts, and then re-watch them with commentary. The guy, even at such an old age, is amazing to listen to, and to hear his thought process, and how, sometimes, things were not actually as they seem in the film.
